You may have noticed a new banner on the right hand side of my blog. I'm trying an experiment to see if I can use my blog to help support student research at BYU (where I teach). I've never been much for exploiting my blog commercially, but I do think supporting student research is a good cause. I'm appealing mostly to corporations (although individual donations would be more than welcome) who want to support interesting and innovative research in digital identity, Web services, and virtualization.
